How to Lock Applications on Your iOS device [Jailbreak Tweak]

There are many ways a jailbroken iOS device is better than a regular one, the amount of tweaks available that make the operating system better is unlimited. Nowadays, people usually run behind security a lot, as most of their data is either stored online, on their computers and on their mobile devices. Even though all of them are pretty secure, it’s easy to break in to them. We all care about our important and personal data and sometimes we do not want to share it with others.

You can password lock your iOS device, but you can’t normally lock application that might be of much importance to you, for example the Messages, Contacts or Notes app. You might have some sensitive data in some of these applications, certain contacts that you may not want to share with others and important data in your Notes app. Wouldn’t it be much simpler if you could just lock applications instead of everything. There’s a tweak for that!

iAppLocker is a Cydia tweak available for all jailbroken iOS devices that can lock application with password protection for each and every app. You can select, which apps you would want to be locked in the Settings menu and also set the global password. All the locked applications will henceforth require you to input a password to gain access.

As you can see in the above screenshot, every time you launch a locked application, you’ll be asked to type in a password set by you. And, this makes your app really secure, by not allowing anyone else to open it. How to get this amazing Cydia tweak on your Jailbroken device?

Well, first of all, you’ll need to have a jailbroken iOS device. Once you have that, head over to Cydia and search for iAppLocker, install it, head over to Settings and Enable the tweak and set your password and select, which applications you’d like to password protect.

Remember, the tweak won’t get enable right after this. You’ll need to Respring to get the tweak working, the same must be followed when you want to disable it. It works pretty well and I was really impressed, so why don’t you try it out yourself and tell us what you think of it.

How to Delete Music from iPod App [Jailbreak Tweak]

The iPod has evolved from just a music player to the world’s most used music player, an app and a word that indirectly means ‘I love music’. After the recent and tragic death of it’s creator Steve Jobs, we are still at shock, but we do have to move on, as Mr. Jobs himself said, ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’.

Here I’ll be talking about how to delete music from the iPod app that is present on all iPhones, iPod Touches and iPad. You obviously know the regular method would be to connect your iDevice to the PC and then delete music via iTunes. That’s one way of doing it, but wouldn’t it be easier if you could delete those unwanted songs without connecting to the PC and directly from the app itself? Again, there’s an app for that, well, it’s actually a jailbreak tweak, but whatever.

Deletrack is a new Cydia tweak, that adds the much required delete option to the iPod app on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and makes it easier to delete music from the iPod app. Sounds good doesn’t it? Well, it works as explained too.

  • All you need to do is jailbreak your iDevice, then head over to Cydia and search for the tweak and install it.
  • After installation, you’ll be asked to restart the springboard, approve to that and you should be good to go.
  • Now when you open the iPod app, a pop-up will appear asking for donation, you can if you want to or you can hit the later button.
  • Head over to the More options found below and you should be able to see a new Delete Songs option. Select it.
  • Now you’ll be able to delete music from iPod app that you want. Swipe to the left to delete the song.
Voila!! Your song is no more in your iPod App. You can also delete music videos from iPod app using this jailbreak tweak.

Speed for Maps adds a Speedometer to iPhone Map App

Jailbreaking always add functionality to iPhone in a very useful kind of a way, I am always in search of some cool Jailbreak tweaks and addons that will further enhance the usability of my iPhone. So today I will be sharing a very interesting find with you that will add a very useful function to your Jailbroken iPhone.

Google Maps application on all the iDevice is quite lacking when we talk about features, and I think for any mapping or navigation app one thing should be there and that is a Speedometer. But this lacking of speedometer shouldn’t be an issue anymore because today I will be telling you about an app that will let you know that how fast you are going within your iPhone’s map applications or even out of them.

Speed for Maps

So here is a cool Cydia Tweak that will allow you to simply add a speedometer to your iPhone in few simple steps. The app I will be recommending is available on Cydia store and you just have to find it and install the package to enjoy this feature.

‘Speed For Maps’ Cydia App

The name of this basic Cydia tweak is Speed for Maps, it simply overlays a miniature speedometer within the stock maps application on your iPhone. The speedometer adjusts itself on the bottom right side of screen, meaning that it does not hamper the view of your Maps app.

Speed for maps settings

You just need to install the app from Cydia store on your iPhone, respring it and launch the Maps app. There is no need of running a setup of some sort because Speed for Maps is available for instant use.

I tried the tweak on my iPhone while driving in a car and found the speedometer readings to be pretty accurate. It is a very cool app especially in a scenario where you want to know that how fast you are traveling but don’t have an access directly to a speedo. Do try it out on your iPhone’s and let us know that whether you found it useful or not.
